Zona 5, where your child lives, is located in a slum area of Guatemala City. An extremely poor area, our program is squeezed in among the shanty dwellings built over an old city dump. Many houses in this area are without toilets or running water and are assembled with scrap wood, sheet metal, and cardboard. Zone 5, is considered one of the most dangerous areas of Guatemala City. It is controlled by gangs and drug pushers. Robberies and murders are common in this area. Public education is available - however, many cannot afford it. Life in Zone 5 is very difficult. This child lives on top of an old rubbish dump in Zone 5 of Guatemala City.
Hello! My name is Fernanda Nicolle Tobar Munoz. I attend the Zone 5 feeding program. I was born on August 04th, 2008. I am ten years old and I am in good health. I am attending fourth grade at school. In my free time, I like to play games in the cell phone, to read and watch television. My favorite color is turquoise, and my favorite animal is the dog. I love to eat lasagna. I just have one brother. My father Gustavo works as a telephone technician in order to cover our needs. Meanwhile, my mother Jessica does the housework and tries to help economically by selling different products by catalog. We live in our own block house with tin sheet roof and cement floors. There are two rooms, running water and electricity. We also share the house with my grandmother, but she has her own rooms. We attend the Catholic Church.
With much love and many blessings,
Fernanda Nicolle Tobar Munoz
